Slick Rick Memorial Buzz Board

Slick Rick Memorial Buzz Board

With our favorite sweater-vest wearing neighbor up to his Howdy Doody chin in hot water, what better time to inject a little levity into the fray.

Slick Rick Memorial Buzz Board
In trouble AGAIN? It just doesn't get any better than this

Clete Casper

 Old Buzz: A really bad color commentator on Fox Northwest, but forgiveable because of his crimson heroics in the Mother of All Apple Cup upsets in 1982.

New Buzz: A friend, high-stakes gambling associate and shameless apologist for Slick Rick. Worse, the one-time darling of Sigma Nu has a wicked case of male-pattern baldness. Yikes! Shoulda been in Theta Xi instead.

Carl Bonnell

Old Buzz: A confused young man torn between Slick Rick's snake oil promises and the fact he knew he'd never see the light of day trying to compete with Hurd and Swogger.

New Buzz: Racing off to the ear doctor. Thought Slick Rick pledged he'd someday make millions throwing footballs. Now believes the coach actually said "throwing dice."

Mike Price

Old Buzz: Gambled away his destiny with a stripper.

New Buzz: At least high-stakes lap dances don't violate NCAA rules on betting.

Ignorance

Old Buzz: On the first offense it's a believable excuse. 

New Buzz: After 56 recruiting violations, a pissing match with Belotti and Toledo, lies about the Niner job and who knows what else, saying you didn't know any better just doesn't float the ol' Lake Washington cabin cruiser like it used to.

Barbara Hedges

Old Buzz: Seems to have bet her legacy, and a mountain of money, on an immature guy who thinks he's made of Teflon.

New Buzz: Incredible foresight to make that $1.6 million loan due immediately upon the guy's sixth (or is it seventh?) major misstep.

Cameron Dollar Old Buzz: Husky assistant basketball coach with problematic recruiting history of his own.

New Buzz: One UCLA grad with the sense to stay away from those pesky $5,000 March Madness office pools.

Float plane rides Old Buzz: Cute stunt used to transport top recruits to the lake-front home where Mrs. Slick was standing dockside with a plate of brownies.

New Buzz: May day! May day!

Bill Doba Old Buzz: Unassuming, straight-arrow defensive wunderkind who likes to BBQ steaks for the linebackers.

New Buzz: Unassuming, straight-arrow head coach who knows all the rules and wouldn't know a lap dance if it hit him in the face.

Seattle Times
sports page

Old Buzz: A mere extension of the UW PR machine.

New Buzz: These dudes actually know a hard news story --- that is, when it's presented to them on a silver platter.

Jim Moore

Old Buzz: The witty Seattle P-I scribe is the freshest approach to sports columns this side of Thomas Boswell. Plus, ya gotta love anyone who dares to constantly poke at the sacred Seattle cow known as Husky athletics.
